Handmadelights by Asaf Weinbroom

| 3 comments

Industrial designer Asaf Weinbroom has created a range of lighting made entirely of wood, including the joints and connector clamps.

The Handmadelights collection includes floor lamps, a stool lamp, a pendant light and table lamps that have wooden clamps instead of bases, so they can be attached to surfaces.

The lampshades are made of laminated wood engraved with a textured pattern derived from textile patterns.

Photographs are by Dan Peretz.

Here's some more information from the designer:


Series 1

My first series of light elements was designed for large spaces, the lampshade diameter is 50 cm. The series includes a wall, ceiling and floor lamps.

I decided to use wood, a renewable resource, in the light elements I designed to create a sense of natural one-of-a-kind look and warmth. I used wood for the joints as well to emphasize high-end handmade craftsmanship.

The lampshades cones are built from a lamination of red oak veneer, engraved with a texture derived from textile patterns. These textile patterns detach the wood from its original context.

I developed a unique lamination technology to produce a strong cone made from thin layers of veneer; light in appearance along with a texture that emphasizes the wood’s natural fiber and structure.

Material: lamination of red oak tree veneer and full wood

Series 2
My second series of light elements includes two table lamps and a stool lamp.


I decided to use wood, a renewable resource, in the light elements I designed to create a sense of natural one-of-a-kind look and warmth. I used wood for the joints as well to emphasize high-end handmade craftsmanship.

I used the traditional wood lathe to produce all of the parts for my lighting fixtures. I created simple and obvious shapes to guide the attention towards the joints and the movement generated by them.

    There have been lots of projects similar to this one posted in the last year but these are a bit more thought out I think. Nice work.

    In the past, wood element enclosing a light source tended to dry out and crack. I wonder if the designer has considered that possibility.
